I’m pregnant!!! YAY!!! Now starts my journey!
Anyways, I didnt test first this morning — I was kinda scared. Pattiwas coming over around noon thirty so I wanted to DEFINITLY test before then so Charlie would have a couple hours to digest it Well around 11 I was feeling tired so I went to lie down. After I got up I went ahead and tested and Oh my! Those line came up soooooo fast! I called him in and he laughed and almost cried and wasn’t sure how we are going to afford it (things are tight since we havent sold our house and dont have tennents in it )Anyways we hugged and kissed and Patti got there about an hour after! I called my mom and told her — she made me promise I would when we were talking two days ago about my appetite being wierd.

I have not made a doc appointment yet — I need to get a suppliment on my dissability medicare first so it covers the other 20% that what I have doesn’t.
Last night I lifted my shirt and told Charlie to take a long hard look — my belly wouldn’t be that flat much longer….
here is what my baby looks like ( I think I am due on Dec. 20th!)
GOSH I AM SO FREAKING EXCITED!! I know I have looked at that damn test at least 20 times. I’ve wanted this forever and thought I was going to have to wait forever more — but there were definitly others plans for me.

Now as far as what else I wanted to say —- My first “pregnancy hormone” blame happened today
I was eating lunch w/DH and nothing went right — the fries were soggy and the burger came out all wrong and instead of getting pissed like I usually do I burst into tears
Got fresh NOT soggy fries and $10 gift certificate out of it tho

I napped for TWO hours the other day… how did that happen?!
I have been good about only taking one test but its HARD! I want to take more “just to make sure” ya know? But AF isnt here obviously so I shouldnt worry

Ok. I caved. I bought a DIGITAL test. I had to see the words PREGNANT. Charlie just rolled his eyes. LOL
Oh…we are calling the baby “BUMP”.
I am having lunch with a friend (lori Fridlin) from out of state tomorrow and I am going to tell her –it will probably be the only time I get to see her the whole pregnancy…
and then I am going to the only Old Navy in the Austin area that has Mat. clothes to look at sales (its about 30ish miles from my house and I am meeting her close to it so why notÂ and Charlie said I can buy *some* stuffÂ )
On a PERSONAL NOTE my boobs are starting to tingle a bit around the nipples and it feels REALLY odd…
I am calling my doctor Monday and will see when he wants to bring me in!

I am 5 weeks today !!Â It’s so awesome that the heart starts beating todayÂ Altho outside the body, BEATING IS BEATING!!!
Wow! That was a slooooooow week!
I go to the doctor this thursday morning and I got a recommendation for a GREAT older doctor that supposedly delivered some STAR babies, including one of Melanie Griffith’sÂ I will have to check him out.
Man I have been so tired and bloated feeling!

IT’S OFFICIAL!!!! The Doctor confirmed it!! YAY!!!!
Patti was quite thrilled to learn she’s going to be a grandma and couldnt wait to tell someone so she told the waitress at the place we were eating! Now this wasnt just ANY waitress! MIL and DH have been repeat customers of hers for 10 years but dont associate with her outside so that was neat!!
When we were outside talking afterwards this little one year old boy came up to me and crawled in my lap and was hugging me! Now beforehand he was “flirting” and I was waving at him! Well the little boy’s dad overheard us talking so we all kind of started talking and thats when he climbed in my lap .. He was wanting to snuggle and hug!! it was sooooo sweeeeeeeeeeeeeet!!
Glenn on the otherhand was shocked and speechless!!

Not much to report except my M/S is getting a TINY bit more intense but still tolerable and not that bad.
My asthma is driving me nuts!!!!!! and I cant take my inhaler
I went to my mom’s and that town makes me sick! Hopefully the wheezing goes away soon!!
took it anyways

I looked up info on Asthma/inhalers because I was miserable the night before last and everything I read about steriod inhalers was the opposite of what my doctor said so I went ahead and took it! It was take it and live or dont and go to the ER and wait for hours….I told Charlie that if I am not getting adequate oxygen then the baby isnt and thats not good for either of us!
I need to take my mom’s ginger suggestion seriously but its just so gross!!
Morning Sickness is slowly getting worse …
